Faith

 Jesus and coffee 

I need them both

A shot of energy

Forgiveness and fortitude

To live in a world

That confounds this mind

Yet leaves it mystified

At the same time


Grant me

The wisdom

To be an instrument

Of Your peace

And lean

Not on 

My own understand

But a faith

That says 

Why not

Anyway

  4. I am not a coffee drinker but I understand the leaning on God part. Yes sometimes it is hard to understand others thinking on things, only with God can we be at peace with everyone

  5. Faith - yes! God's presence in my life is something I treasure so much.
    Not coffee, though - I prefer tea!

  8. What would we do, how could we survive without our faith? Jesus is my rock in this crazy, broken world.

  20. Oh how I need Jesus to strengthen my faith. Starting a new Bible/book study called Becoming a Titus 2 Woman by Martha Peace. Should be a good one!

  21. I smiled when you said Jesus and coffee because I'm looking at a plaque in my house that says, with Jesus
    in her heart and coffee in her cup.

    Have a wonderful week, Regine.

  24. Thank you Ru, for visiting my blog yesterday. I appreciate what you wrote for today. I would trade out the coffee--for a pepsi, but everything is spot on!

  25. Coffee and Jesus - always a great start to the day - but Jesus lasts the distance.
    Stay safe
